Gypsum Combined with Litter

I was reading through some old notes from a conference I attended last year.

In those notes I had written that the research conducted by Dr. Gary Felton has shown that the amount of phosphorus runoff from chicken litter can be completely reduced when mixed at a 1:1 ratio. It could be reduced by 90% when combined at a 2:1 (gypsum:litter) and by 50% when mixed at a 4:1 ratio.

This in conjunction with pelletizing could dramatically change the way we look at applying phosphates!
